Researchers of a Technology Service Center, located in Sharif University of Technology, recently have created nanostructured materials that are able to eliminate resistant infections in hospitals.

According to an ISCA report, mortality related to hospital-associated infections has been considering as one of the most serious challenges in the world. In this regard, researchers of Sharif Graphena, Technology Service Center, located in Sharif University of Technology, succeeded to design and create nanostructured materials which are able to eliminate resistant infections in the therapeutic environment.

One member of this startup, Ashkan Seza stated that their team's main task is dealing with one of the most problematic challenges of the world, which is opposing infections that resist against aseptic techniques.

He continued that these materials intrinsically prevent the growth of biofilms and bacterial species on their surface, even at the presence of brightness, they can wipe out infections as well.

Seza explained that in general, new generation of disinfectants can be used in various places such as water or air purification systems, wallcoverings, surfaces of Medical equipment, fibers and fabrics.
